Dutch reach

People may soon be encouraged to use the “Dutch reach” when opening their car doors. That means rather than using your hand closest to the door, you use your far hand to reach the handle, allowing you to look out of the window and ensure you don’t hit a passing cyclist.

Drivers will also be instructed to give way to cyclists and pedestrians when turning left, in order to provide some clarity to the current Highway Code rules.
